Pyrite, Quartz

Mineral: Pyrite, Quartz
Location: Pyrite, Quartz, Mundo Nuevo Mine, Huamachuco, Sanchez Carrion Province, La Libertad Dept., Peru

This plate of quartz crystals hosts an interlocking pair of pristine pyrite crystals. The pyrite crystals are mirror-bright cubes, with tiny octahedral faces at the corners. In excellent condition, the pyrites are perfect, and there are a couple missing and chipped quartz crystals. A great display specimen – looks really nice either supported to stand as in the first photo, or lying closer to flat, so could look great on any shelf in a cabinet.
